So me and this guy are putting these go go dancers inside of balloons all evening... They're huge 7 foot balloons. I think they might be weather balloons but I'm not sure. Anyway, half way through the evening I'm like... "I wanna get in the balloon!"... and so I do.



And it was THE MOST FUN EVER!



I spun poi inside the balloon for about 10 minutes (there was apparently plenty of air). I CANNOT tell you how much fun it was to be in the balloon. It's like a million degrees and the balloon quickly starts to fog up as sweat is dripping off of you. It's totally intense. Then spinning glowpoi that I got in Scotland (Thank you Molly!) ... the crowd said it looked AWESOME. [Not bragging, I didn't make the glowpoi or the balloon... I just used em]... I wish I could have seen it but I did manage to get some very strange but very cool looking photos. Check out my member gallery....



Here!



The second one is me inside the balloon... scantily clad and in partial makeup... the rest are blurry and artistic cuz they're time lapse.



If you ever have a chance to go in a balloon... do it. Trust me. And if you can, bring a friend, that was fun too... (no photos of that though...)



Am I the first to poi in a balloon? Does that make me the "International Poi in a Balloon Champion"?



Swweeeeeet! biggrin

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Ive never been in a balloon but I did have to wear a giant inflatable cup man suit when working at Quiznos. It does indeed get hot as hell in there. Its not really so much hot as it is humid cuz of all the moisture coming off you and staying in there. Just makes you sweat buckets.

Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

I see.... sorry i had an image of balloons rolling out across lake, kinda like zorbing without the hill, so thought a tether might get tangled....





zorbing - that's the inflatable balloon type things that aren't balloons that are inflatable (that's the extra long way to describe the same thing twice)... but they... unlike balloons, don't need pumping up right? and presumably don't puncture. I'm sure i've seen one of them used on a lake. - smaller space inside though i guess, don't know if there's room for poi.... and you'd have to have good balance to be walking it round and spinning at the same time. I had a go on a giant hamster wheel once, (really, i did.) rodents make it look so frickin' easy...
